Since 2011, Woodcut Maps has transformed locative data into wood-inlay artwork. Our simple and fun online design tool allows anyone to design a beautiful custom wood-inlay map of any place in the world. Each map is made-to-order with love and lasers in San Francisco by master woodworkers. They are amazingly intimate works of art that commemorate important place-based memories like weddings and graduations.
We also teach playful DIY classes in our Bayview studio. Each student creates a high quality custom wood-inlay map artwork of their own design in less than 3 hours - and has a great time along the way!
My roles: Co-Founder, Product Designer, Service Designer, Director of Operations.
